West Midlands Woman Bailed After Arrest On Suspicion Of Terror Offences
A mother from Burton-upon-Trent has been bailed following her arrest on suspicion of Syria related terror offences.
The 25 year-old, who had been living Sparkbrook before going abroad, was detained by Counter Terror Officers from the West Midlands at Heathrow on Wednesday (18 February) after getting off a flight from Turkey.
She had her one-year old son with her and the woman was also questioned on suspicion of child neglect and child abduction.
